Laura Story - God of Every Story

Posted on July 11, 2013 by Family Christian There have been 0 comments


Talented worship leader and songwriter Laura Story is best known for her inspirational hit “Blessings” and co-writing “Indescribable,” a Chris Tomlin anthem. With only two albums to her credit, she’s already an award winner several times over. “Blessings” was certified Digital Gold and nabbed a 2012 Billboard Music Award, GRAMMY® and helped Laura to four Dove Award wins.

Now, with her third studio album, God of Every Story, Laura returns to that deep place of vulnerability before the Lord and honesty with herself. Award- winning producer Ed Cash helmed the deeply personal project, and their shared Carolina roots led to the incorporation of acoustic and epic instruments into this worshipful pop album.

Lyrically, God of Every Story draws from Laura’s own life. Her husband’s brain tumor early in their marriage led the young family down a painful path she wouldn’t have chosen, but one that deepened her faith and her music. The resulting songs show God’s love and grace intersecting with real life. The album is a wonderful reminder that despite our questions or circumstances, we continue to praise Him because we know He is the keeper of the stars.

Listen to a snippet of Laura's new single here

"It was hard to know where to start after my last album. The song Blessings started as a diary entry and God blew us away by using it in the lives of so many around the world. And as I began to write for my new project "God of Every Story", I went back to that deep place of vulnerability before the Lord, and honesty -- with myself. The path God has led our family down is not one I would have chosen for myself. It has been much harder than I had envisioned, yet it has required deeper faith than I ever thought myself capable of. And that's what God of every story is really about: It’s trusting that the same God who orchestrates the rising and the setting of the sun each day pays the same attention to every detail of my life. It’s believing that at the end of the day, we will look back on this amazing God story that is my life and view it as a beautiful sunset, where the blues and reds, the laughter and tears, all meld together to show the faithfulness of God in a way that makes us stand in applause."

"God of Every Story" is a collection of songs about where God's love and grace intersect with our real life situations. It’s about God working all things together for good and love always winning. It’s a celebration of God's faithfulness, even when we don't always understand His plan this side of heaven. Yet we praise Him because He is the keeper of the stars, the One who holds all things together and always, always, deserves our worship.

One of my favorite things about making this record was the privilege of working with Ed Cash. Ed and I met when I was a sophomore in college and being both from the Carolinas, we love exploring how acoustic and more folky instruments can be used in contemporary Christian music. Ed did a great job both pulling from my roots as well as stretching me to new places creatively.
